Whether you arrive in St. George’s by bus, taxi, ferry or on a rented moped, or head off on foot. It’s a must to see this quaint, historic town that incorporates not only its own history but also the history of Bermuda.
Here, you will follow the footprints of the first shipwrecked settlers, en route to Virginia in 1609 when a hurricane drove them ashore near what would become St. George’s. As you stroll the narrow winding lanes and streets, it’s easy to visualise the early years when the town was established as the capital of the island, already named Bermuda.
The Square is the hub of the town, known variously as Town Square, Market Square and King’s Square. This is where historical re-enactments take place.
